Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister, has asked for time to meet with Rahul Gandhi, the party's leader, and Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, to ask for their assistance in opposing the Center's law on control of services in Delhi.
The AAP administration referred to the Centre's ordinance, which was issued on May 19 and established a body to supervise the transfer and posting of Group-A officials in Delhi, as a deceit in light of the Supreme Court's decision regarding control of services.
“Sought time this morning to meet Rahul Gandhi ji and Congress President Kharge ji to seek Congress support in Parliament against undemocratic and unconstitutional ordinance passed by BJP government and also to discuss general assault on federal structure and prevailing political situation,” Kejriwal tweeted.
The ordinance was passed a week after the Supreme Court gave Delhi's elected government jurisdiction over all services except for police, public safety, and land. In order to remove Group-A officials from the DANICS cadre and to conduct disciplinary actions against them, it proposes to establish a National Capital Civil Service Authority.
Before the May 11 ruling by the Supreme Court, the lieutenant governor had executive control over all transfers and postings of Delhi government employees.
Chief Minister Kejriwal, the national convener of the AAP, has enlisted the help of other political parties, including the NCP, the Shiv Sena (UBT), and the TMC, in order to address the problem of Delhi services.
